如何緩解蚊蟲叮咬癥狀

This summer, I decided enough was enough. I was no longer going to listen to myself complain about how I couldn't prevent a bug bite during the 12 seconds it takes me to walk from my car to my front door.

今年夏天,我覺得自己受夠了。我再也不想聽到自己抱怨從車里出來走到家門口的這12秒時間都會有蚊子咬我的事了。
The Bug Bite Thing
蚊蟲叮咬舒緩器
I stumbled upon the Bug Bite Thing in my desperate search for a mosquito bite cure and I feel like I've hit the jackpot. I've only used it once so far, but it was on six different bites I managed to get while doing some yard work last weekend. The Thing is a suction tool that claims to extract the mosquito's saliva left under the skin.
在我拼命尋找蚊蟲叮咬止癢方法時,我偶然發現了蚊蟲叮咬舒緩器(Bug Bite Thing),瞬間覺得自己中了大獎。到目前為止,我只用過一次,因為我上周末在院子里干活,被叮了6個包。蚊蟲叮咬舒緩器是一種抽吸器,可將殘留在皮膚下的蚊子唾液抽出。
A mosquito's saliva contains proteins that are allergens to humans, says Dr. Katie Marks-Cogan, an allergist and immunologist (as well as one of the developers of Ready, Set, Food!). Our bodies create antibodies to fight off the allergens, and it's the resulting immune reaction that causes the redness, swelling and itchiness.
蚊子的唾液含有人類過敏的蛋白質,過敏癥專家及免疫學家凱蒂·馬克思·科根(Katie Marks-Cogan)醫生說道(他也是Ready, Set, Food!的開發者之一)。我們的身體會產生抗體對抗過敏原,而隨之而來的免疫反應會導致紅腫、發癢。

"The whole allergic response is stimulated by the saliva, so if there's a mechanism to get some of that saliva out, I could see that working or at least minimizing the reaction," Marks-Cogan says.

"唾液刺激著整個過敏反應,所以如果有一種可以將唾液排出的機制,我覺得這至少能通過減少反應起到作用,"馬克思·科根說道。
Out of the six bites I tested this on, five stopped itching immediately. The sixth bite was in a tricky ankle spot and I don't think I suctioned it well enough. It continued to bother me off and on for the next two days, although not as much as a bite normally does. I tried suctioning it a couple more times, but as the website says, the "best results are obtained when the Bug Bite Thing is used within the first two minutes of a bite or sting."
在我使用蚊蟲叮咬舒緩器的那一次經歷中,止癢效果立竿見影(6個包有5個包不癢了)。第6個包叮在了腳踝上,我覺得未能止癢是抽吸不到位所致。接下來的2天中,這個包仍舊困擾著我,盡管已經比未經處理的叮咬包好多了。我又試著抽吸了幾次,但正如其官網所描述的那般,"蚊蟲叮咬兩分鐘內,使用該產品效果最佳。"
So there's the con-you've got to carry one around with you and use it right away to get the most benefit. Which is why I promptly ordered two more, so I can keep one in the house, one in my purse and one in my car. The Thing is fairly small and lightweight, so this is a small price to pay.
所以弊端來了--你必須隨身攜帶該產品,并在蚊蟲叮咬后立即使用,以獲得最佳效果。所以,我又立馬買了兩根,一根放家里、一根放錢包里、一根放車里。蚊蟲叮咬舒緩器既小且輕,所以隨身攜帶并不麻煩。
